We are carrying out a wildlife survey with the help of as many of our residents as possible.
The survey has already produced some interesting results in 2016. For example listening to our visiting Nightingale in Eastfield and three species of Owl heard around the village. There have been a dozen reports of Hedgehogs seen and we were given an extensive report of a local BOS survey (British Ornithological Society). The survey covered birds seen and ringed at the Langport Water Treatment Works on our side of the River Parrett. All these items and many others have been added to our wildlife interactive map which is featured on the home page of our community web site. View the Wildlife Map here
With your reports of sightings we will continue to develop the project in 2017.

This survey will help us to assess the health of the natural environment in the Parish and we hope to pass on our findings to the Somerset Environmental Records Centre to add to the County wide picture.
The survey will also help to suggest ways to maintain biodiversity generally not forgetting all the gardens in the Parish. Care for the natural environment is an important feature of Britain in Bloom and the judging of Curry Rivel's entry in July this year.

Finally the Council has a duty to protect biodiversity as explained in the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2014. See here

So it all starts with a survey!
